Take-Two, the publisher behind such games as Grand Theft Auto, has acquired Kerbal Space Program. The announcement came via the official blog where they were keen to stress is didn’t mean things were going to change.
The important thing to know is that this big news doesn’t change much for the KSP community. Squad and the current development team is still here and we’re hard at work on KSP and its future updates, but now we are fortunate enough to do so with the help of an experienced publisher like Take-Two, and we couldn’t be more excited and happy to see where our conjoint collaboration will take KSP forward.
The announcement goes on to explain the current focus of the development team and that is bringing the Making History Expansion to market.
Right now, we’re still focused on the Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion and we’ll continue to keep you updated on our progress. And yes, we’re keeping our promise of free DLC for everyone who purchased KSP through April 2013! We’re continuing to work closely with Blitworks on the updated version of KSP for consoles, which will be available on the Xbox and PSN digital stores when it is complete. This will be a free update for anyone who already owns KSP on Xbox or PS4.
Kerbal Space Program is available now for Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
